The Judah Fellowship

The Judah Fellowship is NCSY and JSU's college campus initiative to engage our public school alumni following their high school graduation. This cohort of passionate and driven NCSY and JSU alumni connect to their fellow alumni in order to ensure their smooth transition to engaging Jewish opportunities on campus.

“NCSY Alumni has completely disrupted the traditional ideas of post high school engagement for public school teens by introducing the Judah Fellowship. Our public school alumni who joined the fellowship are not only more engaged in Jewish life on campus, they are leading the charge by proactively ensuring that their NCSY alumni peers actively benefit from campus Jewish resources as well. This program is a must for impacted NCSY public school alumni.”

- Rabbi Aryeh Wielgus, Regional Director, New Jersey NCSY

“The Judah Fellowship gave my NCSY Alumni the opportunity to continue the Jewish and personal growth they started in NCSY. It’s amazing to watch how their leadership is transforming Jewish community on campus. Everyone should apply for TJJAP, the essential first step of the Judah Fellowship.”

- Marc Fein, Director, TJJ AP

“The Judah Fellowship has given me an amazing outlet to continue developing the leadership skills that I began as an NCSYer. Because of the Judah Fellowship, the Jewish life on my campus has exploded and become one of the most important parts of our Jewish students’ college experiences. The support we get as Judah Fellows from NCSY staff and Jewish staff on campus allows us to revolutionize the way Jewish young adults continue with their Jewish growth and involvement.”

- Julia Wolf (West Coast), University of Oregon

“The Judah Fellowship has been an amazing experience for me. It has been so great watching this program grow so much and growing from it myself as well. Not only have I enjoyed getting to know people on campus and working on bettering Jewish life for students on campus, I also have made great friends through the program and have more opportunities to learn.”
